Why AQA Science?

Our science courses combine relevant, inspiring content and practical work.

With a wide range of science qualifications, we can provide choice and flexibility to suit students of different abilities and aptitudes, from Year 7 to Year 13. We support all students from those who want to understand the basics, through to those who want to follow a career in science or follow a higher education science course.

There will be no issues co-teaching the AS course alongside the full A-level during the majority of the lower sixth due to the common content.
